Please feel free to ignore these ideas, but I thought I’d share the sorts of things I appreciated having (or wanted) when I was in hospital, just in case it might help you and Mr. Wren! =)
- A friend of mine gave me a pair of cheerful/silly slippers and even though I don’t normally wear slippers, they were really nice to have for loo visits. Otherwise I would have been shuffling around in my socks or with my shoes partially slipped on, which is fine, but not nearly as cosy!
- I was told to leave all my valuables at home (or if you’re there, you can be the safekeeper) as it’s nice not having to worry about a watch/ring/necklace, or whatever may have sentimental value, going missing.
- This probably depends on whether knowing the time would help or make Mr. Wren more antsy, but there was no clock in my line of sight from my hospital bed, so I would have liked something nearby to tell me the time.
- That first moment you wake up is always disorienting because you may not remember where you are, so having some reminder of home/loved one(s) nearby is nice.
He’s very lucky to have you there looking after him! I’ll be thinking of you two!
